Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Morphology and its Demarcations
Subtitle: Selected Papers from the 11th Morphology Meeting, Vienna, February 2004
Edited By: Wolfgang U. Dressler
Oskar E. Pfeiffer
Franz Rainer
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20264
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 264
Description:

The papers in this volume derive from the International Morphology Meeting
(Vienna 2004) and were selected because they address the main topic of the
conference: external and internal demarcations of morphology. The external
demarcation between syntax and morphology is dealt with in the papers by
Rood, Cysouw, Milićević, Blom, Enrique-Arias, and Heine & König.
Demarcations of inflection and derivation are discussed in the
contributions by Ricca, Lloret, Manova, Say, Žaucer, and Stump. In contrast
to theoretical discussions in previous literature, which have concentrated
on the internal boundary between inflection and derivation, this volume
attributes equal importance to the demarcations between derivation and
compounding, addressed in the contributions by Bauer, Booij, Štekauer,
Fradin, Amiot, and Saclise, Bisetto & Guevara.
